Drink by Peter Stämpfli

At a time when two historical works (Glacière, 1963 and Escalier de service, 1964) by Peter Stämpfli have just joined the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art, it is a good opportunity to present Drink (1964) and to evoke the methodical and radical approach of the probably most pop Swiss artist. Before painting cars and especially tires, Stämpfli became interested in the early 1960s in the objects and gestures of everyday life that he presented on white backgrounds characteristic of his work during this period.
